A must-have for German-speaking students of Swiss diplomacy (and diplomacy generally) since the Second World War is Dr. Max Schweizer’s recently published Diplomatenleben. This contains 60 texts – mostly in German – written by career diplomats and journalists collected by the author while in the service of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs from 1980 to 2013. The former Minister is currently lecturing on ‘Applied Diplomacy’ at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences. German readers might like to read these reviews:
